EACH OF US, every child born of God, is born to be holy. We embrace this holiness when with Mary we say, Here I am, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word. Show me how to love. Help me live in love. I want to give birth to love. At that moment, love is no longer just a concept or a nice idea. It conceives. It starts to develop and take shape in us. What is conceived in us is from the Holy Spirit. We can give it life.
